After a thrilling offseason and seemingly a great start to training camp, the NY Jets have released their first unofficial depth chart of the 2022 season, and there are definitely a few notable things on there.
Most of the positions on the Jets' depth chart have turned out the way many fans expected, but there are certainly some surprises on there, especially if all the reports and updates from camp are believed to be true.
It's also definitely worth noting that this is unofficial, and the likelihood of massive changes due to injury and preseason performances is very high. Unofficial depth charts are notoriously very unofficial.
Either way, the Jets have now given us some kind of a glimpse into what this team may look like in Week 1. Here are our five takeaways from the Jets' first depth chart of the year.
5. Surprise No. 1 at tight end for the NY Jets
The Jets didn't waste any time filling out one of their biggest needs this offseason, as they were able to add three solid tight ends to this roster through free agency and the 2022 NFL Draft.
It's been assumed that both men signed in free agency, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin, would be Zach Wilson's go-to guys for the 2022 season, and both of them are rightfully listed at No. 1 and No. 2 on this first depth chart.
All the reports so far from this offseason indicate that Tyler Conklin has been one of, if not the biggest standout on the team, and even if it changes before the season or playing time is split between the two, it's just odd to see him anywhere but No. 1.
This will likely change by Week 1, but if this depth chart is anything to go on, Conklin may not only be the Jets' No. 1 to start the year.
